Charging cable falls out of charger port
My Captivate is about 9 months old. I have 3 charging cables and a car charger. Only the car charger stays snuggly in the charger port. With my other 3 chargers, the slightest wiggle of the phone breaks the charging connection.
On one of my chargers, I removed the sleeve off the end of the cable so the connector could go deeper into the phone. My guess is that the charger port has somehow slightly settled into the phone, making it hard to get a good connection.
I called our friends at AT&T. They inform me this is physical damage and not covered by the warranty. I counter that it is a product defect and should be covered without me using my phone insurance. So, they want me to take the phone to an AT&T store. If the store reports back that the charger port looks recessed the same as one on a new phone, then they will cover it under warranty.
To me that BS!
Anyone else ran into this?

That's easy, backup your ROM w/ ROM Manager, copy the clockworkmod folder to your external SDCard. Then back up all your apps with Tibu to your external SDCard. Copy everything you care about to same (photos, maybe music) then remove external SDCard, and put in a safe place.
Flash one-click JF6 from XDA, and update to AT&T Froyo with Mini-Kies. No root now remains, and you can walk in with a perfectly "new" phone
"Please miss, does this USB port look okay to you?"
If you're doubly lucky, she'll be cute, single, and friendly.

I try really really hard to never say this ... but damn Verizon would have had me a phone over-nighted yesterday.
